    I worked at PSEG full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Superb executive leadership team; highly dedicated employees; genuine attitude of service to the community, to employees, and to shareowners. Compensation on par, or better, than peers in the industry. Safety always a #1 priority.

    Cons

    Sometimes high pressure - especially during annual "budget season." Sometimes irregular hours / days due to severe weather events so as to ensure business continuity, quick service restorations, and infrastructure congruity.

    Steady ahead . . .

    I worked at PSEG as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    PSEG had a diverse and inclusive environment. My internship has experience that greatly helped me improve professionally.

    Cons

    Some days felt very slow, and some days there was a lot of work. I really wasn't able to find a good balance. Other than that, very good environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the internship program going. It is an excellent way for people who may not be considering the utility industry as a career path to reconsider.
